Thinking Ahead

Sketch for April's card

Thinking ahead has never been one of my strong suits when it comes to art. I think I have mentioned this on more than one occasion. I'm not very good with planning out an art project & making magic happen on time. I tend to wait until the last minute & then work furiously under pressure to get said project finished. There is almost always someone on the other side waiting patiently for the project to be completed. This whole process completely drives my husband nuts. He's somewhat of a planner when it comes to "projects". Let me tell you this part of art is no fun. It is something that haunts me. Daily. I'm not kidding here folks. If you saw the list of things I need to do on my art list you would run screaming into a wall, repeatedly. Ahhhhh!!!!!!

Then this sweet gal stopped by my blog and said hello the other day.

I'll be participating in ::this:: each week.

I realized the other day that I don't do any art for myself anymore. You know just for the joy of it all. For the heck of it! I am hoping that by participating in Feathers group I will find that "joy" again. If you are interested in this joining this group please go to the above link to find out all the details. You don't have to be an artist to join. Anyone is welcome. No matter what your artistic skill. I hope you'll join me in the fun. Just run on over and say hello.

P.S. Thank you Heidie for being so very patient with me :)

i am just so excited i could squeal!
you have gotten the message loud and clear...it is about making art for ourselves. even you legit artists needs to create for yourselves. i can't wait to see more. your love flowers are darling. i've been doing lots of drawings like that with just pencil and pen. no color. i might be a bit fearful of color...
thank you, you sweet, sweet gal.
